No suspects have been identified and no arrests have been made after a UNF student said she was fondled in the early-morning hours Feb. 1, UNF officials said.

The victim said that at about 1:50 a.m., she was in the second floor lounge of Osprey Landing talking to her boyfriend on her cell phone.

The suspect pushed her against the stove and proceeded to touch her “all over.” She screamed out and the assailant, who she described as tall and wearing dark clothing, left the area, according to the police

A canvass of the area led to conflicting accounts from nearby, non-witnessing persons, but detectives will check possible camera recordings, UPD Chief John Dean said.

“I wouldn’t speculate on the suspect yet because of the vague description,” Dean said.
